“Great sunset beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Bonita Beach is a well kept public beach, great for a couple miles of walking, sunsets, people watching and beachfront home cruising. Don't miss Doc's for refreshment. It hasn't changed in 30 some years. Great casual beachfront bar that displays the sign 'no shirt no shoes no problem'. Jet skis and parasailing available there too.

“Great atmosphere and lots to do”

lots of watersports available. Hire chairs, umbrellas, jet skis - anything really.
Lots of parking and close to Docs for a beer and hot dog!

“Dolphin siting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited Bonita Beach on New Year's Eve Day and it was wonderful, as always. We were treated to four dolphins who swam very close to shore. The beach is clean; you can see jet-skiiers, longboarders, parasailers and fishermen/women. It's relaxation at its finest and you will have memories to last a lifetime.

“Decent beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Although not as nice as Vanderbilt beach just down the road, this beach had some pluses. Parking was nice and close to the beach, and there were starfish washing up on shore which was cool. The sand has a lot of crushed shells so was not too pleasant to walk on. Had a pleasant day nonetheless.

“Just Say the Word, R-E-L-A-X”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

The skies were not cooperative for a beautiful sunset; however, that did not spoil the moment. The beach was definitely one to be enjoyed. The only think that would have made it better is if it were a little less shelly. I know it is known for it's shells and this is strictly a personal preference and not meant to take away any value to the beach.
